A Day of Revelation

Revelation… a revealing of something,
something unknown.
I am so glad you sent the angel
and that John was shown.
What a book of love
to exalt Your Son,
and to declare His vengeance
on what evil has done.
A tender leading in
for a much needed correction.
A warning of things to come
and a promise of protection.
A lifetime ahead
for those on either side.
Those who choose You go home.
The unbelieving, with evil must abide.
Harsh realities are unavoidable
in that day of revelation.
One’s only hope for escape
in Christ’s salvation.

Corrective Concern

Such a small hand
to have to place correction,
but when he is lost
I am his direction.
Such beautiful eyes
to ever shed a tear,
but when he’s in danger
I must say, “No, Dear.”
What a beautiful smile
to ever see turn down,
but when he’s being hateful
he’ll end up with a frown.
What a shame to hear a laughter
scream into a cry,
but when he’s endangering others,
I can’t stand by.
I love my child so much.
I just want to keep him safe,
but it’s so hard to be authoritative
when you hear them cry and play.
